Ah ok, I was like

It just depends on my mood.

If I'm in a ' I want to kill you on every shot ' i'll play Maria style.

If I'm in a ' Let's feel this match out but keep aggressive ' i'll play Serena style.

If I'm in a ' Don't make any errors on your forehand side, just get it in ' i'll play Kim style

If I'm in a ' Your forehand is on today ' i'll play Ana style

I'm really not the same way. I think my swing has elements of both Clijsters and Ivanovic in them, and my mentality is to play Clijsters until I get an opening, at which I will Ana the forehand.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Aussie Kim, Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

' I Ana the forehand '

From the videos, it looks like you have a very accurate serve

Technique wise, I think i'm like Serena. Open stance of both the backhand and forehand.

Thanks. I need new videos though. Those are definitely about 3 years old now. I've changed a lot since then.

And you'd be fun to play. Fake Clijsters vs. Fake Serena

So long

One part of my game that is like Clijsters' game is my defence. I more like a mixture of Jankovic/Clijsters.

You guys are very talented...I'm so Brie

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Ivanovic. Forehand is my best shot, my backhand is terrible and I have to catch my toss numerous times.
